ECHO Awards
BCG is proud to contribute to this year’s ECHO Awards, as part of the jury team. The ECHO Award is an annual prize that is awarded to outstanding talent among non-Western students from scientific and higher vocational education. ECHO defines excellence not only by academic achievement, but by an innovative approach and attitude, demonstrable organizational and managerial talent, active social involvement and the ambition to contribute to the knowledge economy.

Every year, between 20 and 30 students are nominated by higher education institutions across the Netherlands. The Awards showcase and unearth talent across a variety of communities, providing a platform for the nominees to share their stories, experiences and visions for the future. An independent team of judges evaluates the nominations and selects the winners who will be awarded a summer course at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in the United States.

BCG is delighted that Aico Troeman (Managing Director & Partner BCG) is part of the jury team that will decide this year’s winners.

On Thursday, February 3, 2021, the four winners will be announced in the ECHO Award HBO categories. ECHO Award WO, Loyens & Loeff Tax and Law Award and Bèta Techniek Award. The ECHO Award ceremony can also be followed by the home audience via a live stream which you can find on the link below.
